Steel Mill was an american hard rock/blues band, which existed in the late 60's and early 70's. They are mostly known to be one of Bruce Springsteens early bands. They were also named Child before they changed their name to Steel Mill.
The history of STEEL MILL is shrouded in mystery. I can do little here but relate extracts from the liner notes from the 1994 CD re-release of their one and only album, "Green Eyed God". These were written by Mark Brennan, who documented his efforts to find out some background information on the band thus:
"I first spoke to producer John Schroder who recalled the band's name and the fact that the LP was recorded at London's De Lane Lea studios, but other than that he had no recollection of the album.
Larry Page, the legendary producer/manager who owned Penny Farthing records who released (the two singles and one album by the band) could not recall a thing about Steel Mill.
Jeff Wilkins who worked for Lovigny Marquee the production company who signed Steel Mill, also proved to have little recollection of the band or the whereabouts (of the members).
The British Musicians Union had no record of any of the members, and even the normally reliable collectors shops knew of their releases, but not their history."
The sleeve notes end with appeal for any information to be forwarded to the author at Repertiore Records!
